LOL... just figured out I'd been singing into the BACK of my microphone for a week....
Seems like a lot of my musical idols have moved on since 1989.... Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Buck Owens, Glen Campbell, Don Williams, George Jones, Charlie Rich, Freddy Fender, Ralph Stanley, Slim Whitman, Troy Gentry, Roy Rogers, Roger Miller, Hank Thompson, Hank Snow, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Sonny James, Jimmy Dean, Little Jimmy Dickens, Lynn Anderson, Dottie West, Gene Autry, Porter Wagoner, Dan Seals, Chris LeDoux, Kitty Wells, Carl Perkins, Conway Twitty, Eddy Arnold, Hank Locklin, Ray Price, Jack Greene, Skeeter Davis, Jerry Reed, Keith Whitley, Eddie Rabbit, Faron Young, Mel McDaniels, Mindy McReady....... too many gone..... most of my singing is done to these people's songs... the roots of my raising... When I was real young, I listened to these guys because of my Dad listening to them and I had no say so in the matter.... when I discovered my "say so", I listened to the rock of the day, and when I got tired of hearing that, I returned to the country music, both old and new. Now, I'm pretty much stuck in the older stuff because the new "country" stuff is so much pop, and so much about 'getting drunk just because' that I can't listen to much of it. Anyway.... RIP to Mr. Don Williams... I sing a song to your passing, and will continue to sing your songs as a remembrance and because they are so damned good... RIP.
I have an MXL990 microphone, connected to a Behringer Xenyx 802 to give it power, which then goes into my laptop mic jack. That's all. . LOL. Anyway, thank you for stopping by : )
Still tobacco free since New Year's Eve 2016 (over a year now)
This little poem sums up ALL my recordings LOLOL
I may have had to remix it,
so as to fix it.
to make it sound best as I could
if I didn't like it, I'd hide it,
I'd just keep it on private,
so if it's public then I think it's good.
I never set out to become a "singer", but alone in my room in the 60s, I would sing along to 45s and pretend it was me on the record. Later on in the 70's (til now), driving in my car I would take the 'long way home' so I could sing along to my fav songs on the radio. But, that's all it ever was...
I've never sang in public, never sang in front of anyone, I'm still alone in my room pretending to be a singer, only now I can hear what it actually sounds like LOL.
THIS would also explain why most of my songs are just a 'little off' from the originals, because I am singing them as I remember them, if that makes sense. Only if it's one I haven't heard before will I try to find it on youtube or somewhere. Thank you for visiting, and sign my guestbook!! (if I have one????) LOL

Okay.. just a little more info about me....
I also like to fish, golf, camp, (anything outdoors really). I do some rollerblading, bowl, I'm an excellent cook/baker, a so so guitar player, and a hopeless (and I DO mean hopeless) romantic. I'm single mostly...sorta... I've been living for most of 10 years with a sweet gal named Melissa
(2017 UPDATE: I've been informed I am most definitely NOT "single mostly" or even "sorta".... I stand corrected )
(2017 UPDATE 2: I pretty much cut out the fishing and camping and rollerblading and bowling for GOLF only... Still do the cooking, still do the guitar, and still hopeless
